Following our trip to Folly Farm we were asked to enter a competition by the Country Trust. The judges awarded Year 5 Highly Commended here are their comments –
ALRESFORD AGRICULTURAL SHOW SOCIETY’S COUNTRYSIDE EDUCATION COMPETITION 2018
Four Lanes Community Junior School
Year 5 pupils had visited Folly Farm and used the day as a springboard to further their knowledge about bread. They had split into groups and gone into great depth, linking the bread theme to the Egyptians, baked bread in school to link to the science curriculum (reversible and irreversible reactions), explored the process of milling, researched bread-making around the world, explored the cycle of wheat growing and the machines used, and identified bread as a carbohydrate, linking it to healthy eating. They had also used their knowledge from the day to further their Space to Grow Project at school and to kept up the momentum on their composting scheme at school. All of the children questioned were able to confidently answer questions without prompting. The Judges admired the school’s use of the visit to enhance all areas of the national curriculum and the high standard of work on display.
Well done Year 5
Last term the Planetarium came to visit as part of our science unit on Earth and Space. Below is a picture of the day along with our subsequent learning.
